Itinerary
Begin your tour with pickup from your Hoi An hotel and a brief drive to the foot of the Marble Mountains. After a short trek up to the rappelling area, head to the practice slope to learn basic rappelling techniques, including how to secure your harness, tie the knots, and position yourself during the descent.

Once you’re feeling comfortable, set out on your first rappel, from a height of 72 feet (22 meters) with a fantastic view across the ocean. Enjoy two more rappels, including a 49-foot (15-meter) cliff that leads down into one of the mountain caves and a dramatic 82-foot (25-meter) rappel.

After working up an appetite, tuck into a picnic lunch looking out over the mountains. In the afternoon, spend some time exploring the caves, temples, and viewpoints of the Marble Mountains, before returning to Hoi An and being dropped back at your hotel.

Great fun!

We had great time doing this - the abseiling was challenging but completely doable for novices like us. We really enjoyed the the company of the guides and their knowledge on Vietnam, it really added to the experience. Thanks Tao and Wan, it was great!

Yes. I believe a nine-year Old would have a blast. As I recall they have taken a five-year old and 95-year old.
